Cartouche Plaque


Currently not on display


A green glazed faience plaque, worn as a piece of jewellery (like a brooch) in the form of three cartouches surmounted by plumed disks. The text inscribed in the cartouches is crude. The handle at the back is broken off. Pierced with six holes. Previously suggested to be a funerary urn label.
